I can’t believe it, but if you look closely at the cover of the catalog of show quilts you will see the detail of “Princess Daphne.” I’m thrilled.
Both my quilts were accepted in the show and now Daphne is part of the cover. Wow, it’s been a big, exciting month. I hope you will pick up a copy of the catalog to see all the beautiful quilts. They are all stunning.
Here is a full shot of “HRH Princess Daphne.” (23″ x 14″)
Yes, she rules the house and loves it. This piece was whole cloth painted, thread painted, the blue area is hand applique and free motion quilted. I had so much fun working on her eyes.
Here is a pic of my other entry “A poppy for mother.” (40″ x 55″)I worked on this quilt while my mother was in the last stages of alzheimer’s disease. It was a great way to get away from all the sadness of her illness.
Here is a detail shot. This piece was raw edge applique and free motion quilted. I thoroughly enjoyed choosing all the fabrics for this one. They ranged from red to pink to white to purple to violet. Plus some green for the stem. I shot all the photos of the poppies at Wing Haven in Myers Park.
I have several other projects I’m working on currently. I will post about those soon.
